Lacy carries the distinction of going from being the most overrated fighter in the sport to being the most underrated in the space of about 10 months, or maybe even just 36 minutes.

I think that's a premature conclusion. Lacy was dominated by Calzaghe, but Calzaghe is an excellent boxer, and Lacy showed a lot of heart and a rock chin in that fight. He was soundly beating Tsypko until his shoulder injury, where he showed his heart again by fighting through the pain. Now he's going to take time off for the injury to heal and we'll see how he does when he comes back.

The Next Tyson before Calzaghe; a one-dimensional useless bum after Calzaghe.

He sucks anyways..
Jeff Lacy is a damn good fighter who just matched up very poorly style wise to JC. He is still very much a force within the division regardless of what anyone thinks. His biggest downfall is that he got TOO confident in his own power. Guys who fight like Lacy are most effective when they punch in combinations. He still has reasonably quick hands, heaps of power, and is good at cutting off the ring. He was great for boxing and I certainly am looking forward to his return.

Jeff lost one fight and he's a one dimensional bum, his next fight is close due to injury and he is a broken man who was no good to begin with. BOLLOCKS!
The boy is good, just give all the bullshit a rest.

Don't respond to the numbnutz who posted that lacy had a thuggish
entourage who made lacy beleive he was better than he was. WTF!

This turd doesn't even watch boxing. Lacy couldn't have been a more
nice guy in the calz press conferences leading up to the fight.
